God Fixes Cars and Electronic Devices

Editor's Note:

This testimony was hi-jacked from Kristin's Facebook page with her permission. I must confess, I don't understand any of this. I'm still in a state of confusion as to how or why God heals cars and electrical equipment. I'm the stepdad who tried for 3 days to fix the Volvo. It had been raining for days, and the hood doesn't close completely. The entire engine was wet. I put a tarp over it, and it dried out, but the car wouldn't start. The spark plugs looked OK, but I replaced the spark plug wires, which were in bad shape. I replaced the distributor cap, but the rotor was stuck and couldn't be replaced, so I cleaned the electrical contacts. None of this seemed to help, as even after a day without rain, it still wouldn't start. Kristin tells the rest of the story:


Last week I got in my car, put the key in the ignition and turned it...the engine turned over but it wouldn't spark. I tried again...nothing. Karl's stepdad changed the spark plug wires (which were broken) and tried to start it but it wouldn't start. We tried a couple other things, to no avail. During this time I was not trusting that God would do anything for me or the car. "If He was going to, He would have already." I reasoned. I was very stressed over the situation because I don't have a lot of money, certainly not enough to bring the car to a shop.

In a moment of desperation Karl went out to my car, got in and closed the door. He said "Okay God, do you see your daughter's desperation? Now, i'm already mad at You and if You don't fix this car i'll be even more mad. In the name of Jesus I command this car to start!" He then put the keys in the ignition and gave them a turn. VROOM! The car started right up!

This week I dropped one of Karl's oscillators (an electronic test device) and it broke. Whenever he would plug it in it would short out and trip the power breaker. We prayed over it to be fixed and plugged it in, but it shorted out. We prayed again, to no avail. So, we put it aside and went about our life. A couple hours later I decided to pray over it again. I did and plugged it in and it didn't short out! But Karl informed me that the breaker hadn't been reset. So he reset it and we plugged it in again. It still didn't short out! Karl ran a few tests on it and it was working normally!


I'm writing this to tell you that, even though you may not have a grid for this, God works in mysterious ways. He sees a situation and His heart is to help, no matter what needs fixing. Whether it's raising the dead or fixing a car, He wants to take care of us.
